Quake 2... anyone?
« on: April 26, 2016, 01:01:34 AM »
Dear Quakers!

I hope I don't bother too much with this help request.
I used to be a great fan of Quake 2, some 15 years ago... It was my first videogame! How many long hours I spent playing Quake 2, I have no idea! :D
Now I would like it so much to start playing Quake 2 again, but unfortunately I lost all my old data, including installation CDs. Is there any good-hearted person here who'd be willing to give me his/her installation files, perhaps via Dropbox or other file sharing tools? I cannot use Torrent cause I live in Germany and they are extremely hard on downloaders here!
I hope you can understand my request :) thank you very much!

Just so you know, the link to the Q2 Starter that Alpha posted isn't gonna get you started playing any single player Q2.

If you want a complete full version of the game rather than just the basic stuff for multiplayer (which I'm assuming you do), you'll have to look elsewhere.

Did a quick google search and found this. I didn't download it all and check it out, so who knows if it's the full original retail version.

Thank you all! I'm actually searching for the complete Quake II installation files, indeed. I'm not sure I could download that file from Mediafire without having trouble... they are extremely serious about downloading here in Germany! That is why I asked if someone here can kindly provide their own files. I'd be really grateful! (But if there is any reason why my request is unreasonable or rude, please do let me know... I'm not familiar with the whole videogamers' universe, including its "honour code", as Quake II was the only videogame I ever played!)

PS I also cannot buy anything from any websites outside Germany, cause my stupid credit card is only valid for Germany and cannot be used in many cases. I'm in the wrong country!  :bigcry:

There should be somewhere in Germany where you can purchase this.

Maybe you could send me a couple hundred in US cash and I buy it and mail it to you.  :evilgrin:

I know guys in northern Germany who walk around in white power neo-nazi t-shirts despite the anti Hitler/holocaust glorification laws. Grow a pair and steal your shit the same way everyone else does.

Racists are people too. If I discriminate against those who discriminate, then I'm no better than they are.

Unless they're black. I'm better than black people.
